Title: Lets see those V-codes! (and I don't mean 440-6 engines)
Post by: RzeroB on April 07, 2014 - 11:06:15 am
The internet is a powerful thing. I admit that I am learning more about our beloved E-bodies today than I knew "back in the day" when I was owning, driving and thrashing them! One of the things is the incredible myriad of different types of stripes, vinyl tops, mouldings and their colors that you could have ordered from the factory - the "V-codes! You have your V1 vinyl tops, V4 strobe stripes, V5 vinyl side mouldings, V6 longitudinal stripes, V7 accent stripes (painted pin-stripes), and V9 Bumble-Bee stripes. As far as I can tell, you could get the V1 vinyl tops in seven different colors, V4 strobe stripes in four colors, V5 vinyl side mouldings in seven colors, V6 longitudinal stripes in eight colors, V7 Accent pin-stripes in who knows how many colors, and the V9 Bumble-Bee stripe in 12 colors. Whew! That is a lot of different styles and colors!
Here is my revised table as to what  "V-codes" were available. The first time I presented this table KA (KissAlien) KA'd (kicked a$$) on me for not doing my homework. :bricks1: I have since searched and searched for the "correct" answers and this newer version is, I believe, more accurate then it's predecessor. It is however a "living document" and subject to change and updates as more definitive credible information becomed available.

The vast majority of the V-codes seen on the cars seem to be either black or white. However, there are examples of the less popular colors out there. Now lets see how many of the different colors we can find and post other than the common black or white ones. Here are a few examples to kick things off:

1970 Challenger RT with a V6B Blue side stripe
(http://i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j479/tomravak/Hemi%20E-Bodies/1970%20Challenger%20RTs/70RT-71.jpg)

1970 Cuda with an "incorrect" V6R Red "Hockey Stick" stripe
(http://i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j479/tomravak/Hemi%20E-Bodies/1970%20Cudas/70CU-95.jpg)

1970 Cuda with V1P Yellow "Mod-Top" vinyl roof

A lot of the items you listed are not available on E-Bodies or don't exist at all. I tried to correct it, but may have missed something since I only had a couple of minutes to look at it.

Also, I do have pictures of almost all of these (except for some of the bumble bee stripe colors). I'll let others have fun posting things before I monopolize the thread. Some items I can't post due to owners request and most of the others are well over the max size limit for this site so I would need to resize them.

Hey KA, with the way you wield that red pen I bet you are a school teacher are you not? :rofl: It's all good, but hey, look at this chart that I found on the Hamtramck Historical website http://www.hamtramck-historical.com/dealerships/1970ColorAndTrim-01.shtml (http://www.hamtramck-historical.com/dealerships/1970ColorAndTrim-01.shtml) If you look at the bottom of the chart it denotes V8 stripe codes in five different colors: black, white, red, blue and green. The V8 code comes up as a "Transverse Stripe". I don't ever remember seeing that code anywhere for an E-body - in person or on the web. Any insight on the the V8 stripe code and this chart?

V8* is a tail panel stripe like on a 70 Road Runner or Duster, etc...

Here is the tag with a "V6R" that is associated with the car in my first post. Don't know if it is genuine or not, but it looks legit to me. But how can anyone be 100% sure without any empirical historical data from Ma Mopar herself? :dunno:

That is what I was thinking too because you see the tail panel stripes between the tail lights of a Duster coded as V8X. The interesting thing is that the title of this chart specifically says "Challenger RT ... etc" and then at the bottom is listed the five V8 stripe codes. Maybe it was pre-production literature that was subsequently corrected to show the correct code coding in a later revision or something? :dunno:

Nope, I'm a business analyst (formerly a computer programmer). The V8* is a typo. The correct code is V6*. There are several typos in the color and trim selectors as well as missing info and running changes. Those original 5 colors were supplemented with unnamed stripe colors for Dodge that match Panther Pink and Green Go. You can see this on the What's New From Dodge supplement on Hamtrack-Historical.

Plymouth added the same two colors for 'Cudas only, but they named them Chartreuse Radiant and Magenta Radiant.

I won't comment on the authenticity of the tag other than to say that the stripe code is wrong. Others might just say "Fake tag".

Hey KA, what's your reference on all of this? Not being confrontational, I just want to get the straight scoop. Seems some of the info I have picked up along the way may not be accurate. So what is your source there KA and could you share it or point me to it?

Thread is taking a hit before it even cleared the launch pad. Don't want to see it devolve into a oblivion. Would like to see it take off and see your pics (and tags) of some of the different V-code colors that the cars came with. So dig into your e-photos, your Photobucket or Flickr online albums, surf the web, whatever, and lets see what we can discover and post it up on this thread  :picture:

Years of research. As for the tag I don't track them like many do, but I can tell you that stripe code is wrong and the tag has been talked about before either here or on Moparts. The Plymouth color and trim selector also shows it as black only.

Here is an interesting pic of a tag from a '71 Cuda that belongs to member 6771plymouth

(http://www.cuda-challenger.com/cc/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=98563.0;attach=168940;image)

Note the vinyl side moulding code is V5Y

An interesting color in that: 1) it's paired with GY8 Gold Leaf (gold body paint with a yellow moulding? - kind of unusual) and; 2) it's one of those vinyl side moulding colors that got the "red pen" line-out from KA. So it begs the question - "is it a factory original coded tag or is this another example of something nefarious?" Hmmm? :dunno:

Here is an interesting '70 Cuda convertible that is currently for sale on Cars-Online.com http://www.brownsperformancemotorcars.com/used/Plymouth/1970-Plymouth-Cuda-Baltimore-a5bbadd30a0a003009ef354c3057b5da.htm (http://www.brownsperformancemotorcars.com/used/Plymouth/1970-Plymouth-Cuda-Baltimore-a5bbadd30a0a003009ef354c3057b5da.htm) The car is an original '70 Cuda convertible that currently has a V6X black "Hockey Stick" stripe. The interesting thing on the tag is that it was originally suppose to have a V4J Chartreuse strobe stripe. The car looks really super-nice - too bad it doesn't have the V4J stripe on it for that would have been really unique! I love this particular car! :2thumbs:

Here is what it should look like if it were finished per it's fender tag ...

(http://i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j479/tomravak/Mopars/V-codes/Cuda_V4J_FJ6.jpg)

How cool and unusual would that be having a '70 Cuda 'vert with that color combo?

Nothing nefarious. Since most people don't care about body side moldings I interpreted what you titled that column as meaning the BSM that had the vinyl stripe surrounding it. That would limit it to to '70 Cudas, and the colors I showed. But since it actually says vinyl inserts that's different. In 1971 Cudas could get black, green or gold BSMs.  V5Y is gold, not yellow. Sorry for the confusion.

How about a '70 Challenger in FE5 Bright Red with a V9W white Bumblebee stripe? I particularly like it when the Bumblebee stripe matches the top of the car ... looks color coordinated and sharp! I like the way that the V9W white Bumblebee stripe makes the "Challenger" script and RT badge really stand out too!

No the pink car took over 3 years to redo and I'm still sorting out all the things that weren't done correctly. I haven't heard anything about that 4x white car since it last sold. That was a cool car for sure.

According to this page from the Challenger data book did you know that ...

The green vinyl roof was available with all green exteriors regardless of the interior color ... and with the beige, yellow, gold, black and white exteriors with green or green and white interiors ... or with beige, black and white exteriors with black or black and white interiors.

The "gator-grain" vinyl roof was available with the greens, dark tan, and gold exteriors with all interiors ... with beige, black and white exteriors with green, tan or white and black interiors ... with burnt orange exterior with burnt orange, black or white and black interiors ... with Banana exterior with black or white and black interiors ... with blue exteriors with blue, black or white and black interiors.

(http://i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j479/tomravak/Mopars/V-codes/Challyvinylroofcoloroptions.jpg)

But knowing Ma Mopar, you could probably get ANY vinyl roof with ANY exterior color with ANY interior if you "special ordered" it.  :bigsmile:

Black TX9 Challenger with a red V9E Bumblebee stripe. That red Bumblebee really "pops" against the black. I seem to prefer the accent stripes that have a lot of contrast with the base color of the car ... like this one! :thumbsup:

and V9W white Bumble Bee over TX9 Black. I really like this one since it has the white interior and the contrast between the black exterior and white Bumble Bee stripe and white interior is really crisp. :thumbsup:

Some Hi-Impact Challenger V6* stripes ...

The rare V6M over FM3 Panther Pink with a V1X top and the V21 hood ...

With the way the girl is pulling her hair back and grinning I think she likes this car ... a lot! "This car is so ME! I can definitely see myself in it. I love it!"

(http://i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j479/tomravak/Mopars/V-codes/Chally_V6M_FM3_2.jpg)


and the even more rare (at least to me) V6J over FJ6 Green Go with a V1W top ...

This combo on a Challenger was very hard for me to find ... if anyone else has any pics of this combo post 'em up here as I (and others?) would like to see them.

(http://i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j479/tomravak/Mopars/V-codes/Chally_V6J_FJ6.jpg)

Both these cars are sporting Alberta plates ... coincidence? ... or same owner? ... wouldn't that be something if it was?

You don't see many of these, but here is another V1P yellow "mod-top" '70 Cuda.

What seems to be even harder to find is a V1Q blue "mod-top" '70 Cuda. According to the Mod-Top Registry http://www.mooresmopars.com/modtops.html (http://www.mooresmopars.com/modtops.html) there were only 26 mod-top '70 Cuda's made with only a few of them having the V1Q blue mod-top on them. Have you seen one? Got a pic? Post it here if you do :grinyes:

No the pink car took over 3 years to redo and I'm still sorting out all the things that weren't done correctly. I haven't heard anything about that 4x white car since it last sold. That was a cool car for sure.

A buddy of mine had the quadruple white sunroof 72 barracuda and sold it to a collector out East.  I forget the guys name, but he collects unusual Mopars.  I believe he has the 70 hemi Charger 500.  I sold the same guy at the same time a 73 Cuda 340 4 speed that was Purple (999) white top, stripe and gut.  Radio delete car.  That would be another striking car restored.

V3W and V6X on an EF8  BS27H0B
 Yup, the White Top is gone...
There was no top when I got it in 1987 and the truth is I didn't even consider putting a White top on it.
Could be a rare combo, I don't know? I do know I've never seen an EF8 convertible Cuda or Challenger with a white top.
If there are any out there I would love to see a picture. No matter how I try, I just can't picture it with a White Top.   :bigsmile:

 :iagree: Yeah, a white top IS more difficult to picture than a black one ... especially if you have a green interior (do you? or is it black? can't really tell)

She's a beauty alright ... those wheels are really "bright" ... are they the 17" rallyes from Year One??

Black interior and Year One rallyes. They don't look that shiny in person, in this picture they are in direct sunlight on a clear day.
The pictures in my sig are with Mopar 14" rallyes earlier this year.
The car is in the shop getting fresh EF8 paint right now. :bigsmile:

Almost as rare as the "mod-tops" was the "gator-grain" tops. They were available only in 1970 and I personally don't find them all that attractive ... but that's just me ...

Lets talk about Challenger V21 performance hood treatment for a moment ...

In 1970 if you ordered your Challenger with the V21 performance hood treatment you got a very attractive looking vinyl blackout treatment to the raised portion of the hood like this ...

(http://i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j479/tomravak/Mopars/V-codes/70Chally_hood_V21.jpg)


But in 1971 Dodge apparently mixed things up a bit.

In 1971 it appears that you could get a hood treatment that looked just like it did in 1970 like this one ...

example 1
(http://i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j479/tomravak/Mopars/V-codes/71Chally_hood_V21.jpg)

Or you could get one that had the hood treatment with a "R/T" graphic like this one ...

example 2
(http://i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j479/tomravak/Mopars/V-codes/71Chally_hood_V21RT.jpg)

Or you could get just the "R/T" graphic by itself like this one ...

example 3
(http://i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j479/tomravak/Mopars/V-codes/71Chally_hood_RT.jpg)


Is example 1 a 1971 Challenger with an "incorrect" 1970 vinyl hood treatment?

Is example 2 a "correct" V21 vinyl hood treatment for a 1971 Challenger?

Is example 3 a "standard" graphic as part of the R/T package without the V21 vinyl hood treatment?


How should these three examples be coded?  :dunno:

Example 1 is a non-R/T...not sure if it has he correct stripe, or even if V21 was available on non-R/T's

The data book says you could get it if the Challenger had the 340.

Post by: RzeroB on July 29, 2014 - 11:55:26 am
So .... for your 1971 Challenger with the J54 performance hood you could get your hood in one of four ways:

V21 without R/T graphic for non-R/T Challengers (example 1)

V21 with R/T graphic for R/T Challengers (example 2)

Just the R/T graphic for R/T Challengers (example 3)

or blank for non-R/T or stripe delete R/T Challengers

There you have it. :clapping:

Post by: anlauto on July 29, 2014 - 12:34:38 pm
No...You're almost correct. Example number three... just the 'R/T" on the hood is not a hood treatment....it's a standard part of the R/T package. Every 71 R/T should have R/T on the hood UNLESS equipped with N96 Shaker hood. :2cents:

N94 = the T/A hood as found on the '70 T/A Challenger or special ordered on any '70-'71 Challenger (relatively rare IMO)

Here is a documented one on a non T/A '70 Challenger R/T ...

Now here is one you don't see very often ... in fact, I think that this is the first one that I have seen ... a vinyl top that is NOT black, white, green or a Mod-Top. Check it out ... it almost looks like the vinyl top is brown ... but it can't be because this car is supposedly a concourse level 1971 Hemi Challenger and who would put a brown top on one of those? So I'm left with one guess ... is this one of those rarely seen V1Y gold vinyl tops that became available in 1971? Yeah, I know it looks more brown than gold, but it seems like the only plausible explanation :dunno:

I found the pic and sales ad description of this car in a Brand X forum that was dated back in '07. The sales ad description was interesting in that as of '07 the owner claimed that it was a one-owner car with only 1,800 miles on the clock! That could also be why I had never seen it before - with only 1,800 miles on the clock this car has definitely been keeping a low profile!

 :iagree: I've never been a big fan of blue , didn't hate it was just a "neutral" colour for me, but I really like that with the lighter blue stripe! Looks really good on your car! :2thumbs:

That is a great shot!! A good comparison to really see the differences of the Challenger and Cuda.  Thanks for posting.

Nice. Yeah, the shot makes the body color look a little off - what color is that? Is it FY1? And the Bumble? V9T (FT6) I presume?

I was kind of thinking it looked like BL1 or dy3.

Regardless, that's a pretty cool collection of colors. 

Would that interior be a TT ?  Walnut and beige?  Never seen that.  But it all looks to be dark brown.  :2thumbs:.

Here is a very intriguing '71 'Cuda that I saw at the MCACN show in Chicago this year. It's info placard stated that it is an unrestored original 11,000mi "survivor". That's cool :thumbsup: But check it out, not only is it an unrestored low-mile survivor, it is also a V02 car with a GY8 Gold Leaf top over a GY9 Tawny Gold body. But wait, there's more ... it is also a 440-6 column-shift auto and check out those wheels ... rallyes? nope! road wheels? nope! dog-dish covered steelies? nope! steelies with "deluxe wheel covers"! Now that's different ... as is the whole car ... rather unique 'Cuda if you ask me :2thumbs:

Another interesting car from the MCACN show in Chicago. It doesn't have any V-code options but it is interesting in that it IS a HemiCuda built for export and apparently sold new in ... are you ready for this? ... Guatemala of all places! Still has it's Guatemalan license plates on it too. I peeked at the fender tag and sure enough it is coded Y09 (international sale) and H25 (heater delete) so that fits with it being sold new in Guatemala. It was originally FT6 in color with a H5T5 interior but somewhere along the way it got some 70's fender flares, fat tires on slotted aluminum mags, a gunmetal gray exterior and a black interior. I had never seen or heard of this car, "The Guatemala Hemi" before, so I thought it was pretty cool and decided to post it here.

Just so happens I did snap a pic of the FT. I was leaning waaaaaay over the barrier shooting the pic with my arms fully extended so it isn't that great - the left edge of the tag kind of got cut off. The codes on the left side of the tag were from bottom to top E74 FT6 FT6 M25 which you can see the last number of the codes in the pic.

I recently came across this ad for what is stated as being the only known EW3 white 1971 Challenger with V6W white R/T stripes.

http://classiccars.com/listings/view/618063/1971-dodge-challenger-r-t-for-sale-in-charlotte-north-carolina-28269 (http://classiccars.com/listings/view/618063/1971-dodge-challenger-r-t-for-sale-in-charlotte-north-carolina-28269)

Here is the car - it's a '71 340 auto R/T. Obviously the car is EW3 white but what is not so obvious is the V6W white R/T stripes - they are virtually invisible (at least to me) but the ad says that they are there. Never could figure out why someone would order a car where the stripes are the same color as the body but apparently people did :dunno:

The car is well known as it has been for sale a few times and was in a few magazines. All the pics I have of the car that clearly show the stripe are too big to be posted here. One of my rare stripe Challengers is white with white stripes also. It's a '70 EW1/V9W A66. Needs a total resto.

KA try a picture resizer like http://picresize.com/ (http://picresize.com/) and shrink those pics down to a manageable size and post 'em up. Sure would like to see the detail of that white on white stripe of that '71 Chally R/T.

From the background you can tell that this is Steve Juliano's place and this is his uber-rare '71 Hemi Challenger R/T with a M51 sunroof.

But that is not why I posted it here.

What is bugging me is that I am trying to figure out just what color it is :dunno: To me it looks orange, like EK2 Go Mango orange, but Go Mango wasn't an available color in '71 (as far as I know). Maybe it's the light? Fluorescent light causes colors to appear differently than they do in natural light. The '71 Cuda in the background looks like it is FE5 Rallye Red to me, so maybe the Challenger is EV2 Hemi Orange :dunno: It almost looks too "orangey" to be EV2. Maybe it was a special order color or something :dunno: What do you think? Anyone ever see it in person out in natural light, or have a pic of it's FT?

(http://i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j479/tomravak/Mopars/V-codes/70Cuda_FM3_V4X.jpg)

This car has a lot of cool features to it. The most obvious thing is the High-Impact FM3 Moulin Rouge paint! Now that's "High-Impact!" The Moulin Rouge paint is accented by a black vinyl roof and a black hockey stick stripe. I like it!

The interesting part is in the pic of the fender tag. On it we can see that the car was not originally coded for a hockey stick stripe but instead it was coded for a V4X black strobe stripes - how cool is that?! :thumbsup:

(http://i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j479/tomravak/Mopars/V-codes/70Cuda_FM3_V4X_FT.jpg)

The fender tag also shows a very unusual "V08" code which comes back as a "paint, trim, vinyl roof, edit waiver"?? :dunno: Not sure what that's about?? :clueless: But the fender tag also shows this car as having the A67 rear window louver package! :thumbsup:

FM3 Moulin Rouge paint ... V4X black strobe stripes ... A67 rear window louver package ... this is one very cool Cuda! :cooldancing: And as "Siskel and Ebert" would say ... I give it  :2thumbs:

Speaking of "brighter" check out this '71 Challenger in EV2 Hemi-Orange with the V6V fluorescent orange stripes! Now that's bright - almost like "day-glo!"

The fender tag also shows a very unusual "V08" code which comes back as a "paint, trim, vinyl roof, edit waiver"?? :dunno: Not sure what that's about?? :clueless: But the fender tag also shows this car as having the A67 rear window louver package! :thumbsup:

FM3 Moulin Rouge paint ... V4X black strobe stripes ... A67 rear window louver package ... this is one very cool Cuda! :cooldancing: And as "Siskel and Ebert" would say ... I give it  :2thumbs:

My best guess is that because the V6_ hockey stripe was standard, to replace it with a V4_ stripe, there would need to be a "Delete" code (V08).  With the louvre package, that would be one cool looking car!

Hockey stick stripes were optional not standard.

 :worshippy   Thank you!  I really wanted to change the color combo from factory but just could not do it.  It did get a lot of really nice compliments at the local show last weekend!  :thumbsup:   Still have a few things to do like getting the front ride height down a little and a few other detail things but it is driveable and looks WAY better than I had hoped for!  :clapping:

Also has a "V08" in there for "paint and trim edit waiver". The V08 code would come up when a color combination that was not recommended by the factory would be ordered and built anyway. In this case the H6E4 red interior was not one of the recommended interior colors for FY1 Lemon Twist. Interesting car indeed. Thanks!

I can go buy standard colored cars every day of the week from joe blow that ordered standard, standard, and standard options.  Thousands of standards.  I tend to stick out.

There was a 2015 Challenger at a local show that was Sublime with red interior.  Nice car but it is not a color combo I would want.  There are a LOT of plum crazy and Sephia (tan) hellcats out there now also.  Again not a color I would personally want. 

White, red, silver or black with red interior I could live with.

Every now and then I will send an email.  I was heard that the fella that owns it now purchased it for 2800 and immediately turned around and is trying to sell it for 3800 now.
That's quite the artifact.  Gran Coupe to go along with all those colors.   Who knows, maybe it will end up as some more yard art,  here.

Yeah, I hear you. With the "correct" restorations they now seem to be everywhere. They seem odd and I just don't remember seeing any cars with them "back in the day". I suppose they were one of the first things to get tossed for aftermarket wheels and tires back then too.

I don't believe the V6R red stripe was ever available on a 70 Cuda :nono:
Per the original owner, Richard Carpenter, who took delivery the car in April of 1970...

"In early 1970, during the time Karen and I were working on “Close To You”, I visited Lakewood Center Chrysler/Plymouth and special-ordered this car. I wanted the high-performance ‘Cuda, but with the luxury Barracuda “Gran Coupe” interior which consisted of a felt-like headliner, an overhead console with three warning lights and an alternate seat cover design with the front buckets finished in leather with vinyl trim, and the salesman stated, correctly, that it could be done. I also ordered power windows, AM/FM 5 speaker stereo, light package, "Elastomeric" front bumper, 440 Six-Barrel and Shaker hood, Rallye instrument cluster, and a number of other fairly rare Barracuda options. As this car was going to be paid for in payments, and my folks were going to co-sign for me, I didn’t want to push my luck and order the pricey 426 Hemi. (I really, really did … but I didn’t.) This engine was close to a thousand dollars extra and almost a quarter of the price of the car. I knew I was fortunate to be allowed to order the car at all, as we barely could afford it, so, no Hemi.

We took delivery of the ‘Cuda on April 10th..."

Yeah, but geez they really should have offered a couple of more colors ... after all, you could get the V6? side stripes on a Challenger in seven different colors ... why not a couple V6? colors for the Cuda? Guess the front office blew their vinyl graphics allocation budget on the Challenger and the Cuda was left with budgeting for only a single color vinyl graphic ... black of course.
